1977 LHS Football Team1977 LHS Varsity Football Team

The Bulldogs would drop the 1st game of the year to our Pike County rivals the Bowling Green Bobcats.  Coach Viehman and Coach Gschwender would get the Bulldogs turned around in week 2 to beat Pittsfield and then run through the Clarence Cannon Conference gauntlet and come out unscathed.  This would earn them a conference championship and district championship which would propel them to the playoffs. The Bulldogs would hammer California 48-8 in the Class 2 Quarterfinals.  The Bulldogs would handily beat Country Day in the Semifinals by a score of 31-8 and win their 10th game in a row.  The Bulldogs would take on Monett in the Class 2 State Championship game and lose a heartbreaker 21-19.  This was the 1st Louisiana Football Team to make it the State Championship game in school history.
